Cardinals in Action

This week the Bluebirds 1 students learned about boats and ships. The children made and decorated a boat out of a paper plate.  

The Redbirds 1 class explored our listening senses, and Callie taught Frances how to draw a bird.

Tadpoles 1 are making bees to go with their lesson of On the Go - Wings. They are also using various ways to learn letter recognition.

This year in Religion our Lower School is leading us through Lent embracing the three traditional disciplines of fasting, prayer, and almsgiving. Here is a picture of the fasting discipline that our Second Graders decided on together. We can learn a lot from our little ones who never cease to amaze me with the clarity, simplicity, and passion with which they grasp things that adults sometimes miss.

The Eighth Grade class created miniature Mardi Gras floats in Art last week.

6th Grade played a variation of a familiar card game to practice with negative numbers in math this week.


Fourth Grade loved performing in their class play recently. The two skits, The Gods and Goddesses Bake-Off and Pandora’s Box, were based on the Greek gods and goddesses.
